Pospisil, who has been ranked as high as No. 25 in the world in Singles and No. 4 in Doubles, was most recently named Postmedia’s Male Athlete of the Year for 2019. The Canadian athlete is coming to Calgary following an incredible year having defeated two of the top 10 ranked Singles players in the world – Karen Khachanov (Rus) and Fabio Fognini (ITA). The Vernon B.C. native’s impressive list of accolades includes Wimbledon Singles Quarterfinalist and Wimbledon Doubles Champion, as well as playing in the 2016 Summer Olympics doubles bronze-medal match alongside Daniel Nestor.
“We are thrilled to welcome Vasek Pospisil to the second edition of the Calgary National Bank Challenger,” said Danny Da Costa, Tournament Director of the Calgary National Bank Challenger. “Pospisil demonstrates the calibre of talent we host through this exciting tournament, and we look forward to yet another successful event celebrating and recognizing professional tennis in our country and around the world.”
